There’s a huge event sweeping across India right now. You guessed it—it’s Anna Hazare’s fight against corruption. A scam is an attempt to fool people and misuse their money. There have been many such scams in our country in the last few years and many of our politicians are very corrupt. But they continue to be in power and no one has the right to question them. That’s just wrong! And this is what Anna Hazare is fighting to change.
Anna was in Tihar jail and his loyal supporters were sitting outside jail asking for him to be released. This is called a peace protest because none of the protestors get violent.
Some of your friends’ parents work in Tihar jail. These friends wanted to do something for the movement, too. But they couldn’t bunk school and they also had to do their homework.
Then one of them had an idea. They saw that many of the protestors were very thirsty and could not get up. So they filled bottles of water and passed them on to the thirsty people.
These people gulped down bottles of water in one go and were saved from fainting. Your friends tirelessly filled more bottles and made sure that no one was thirsty that day.
Finally, they were really tired and sleepy. But they didn’t just have dinner and go to sleep. All the little helpers went home and did their homework.
What a day to remember for the rest of their lives!
